Any comments on running ACT! 2011 on a 64-Bit machine with Windows 7? Issues with Outlook 2007 or Word 2007? Does ACT! perform better on a 64 Bit machine? Windows 7?
Other comments would be appreciated.

ACT! 2010 and 2011 both run fin on my 64-bit Windows 7 systems. The ACT! program remains a 32-bit program so it doesn't directly gain from the 64-bit operating system. However, there are some indirect performance gains. Initial load is improved because the data is moved from the hard drive to memory faster. Any time the virtual memory is required, the swaps from memroy to disc and disc to memory are faster. Finally, the ACT! program is an I/O bound program so any improvement in the speed of data movement helps the ACT! program performance. The differences aren't startling but everything seems a bit faster.

what about installing an ACT2006 in Windows 7 Professional? All my other XP software installed fine. But it won't let me install ACT. What is file extension for db so I can make sure that I still have if I upgrade?
